I've been using this plan ($15 for 3Gb) on a Moto G5 since March of this year. I use TextNow to make calls on the data network. Fido support on here was great in blocking voice and text for me on the voice network.
Everything worked well until last week, when I was not able to make outgoing TextNow calls on the mobile data network. Outgoing calls over a wifi network is fine. Receiving calls on the data network is fine also.
Is Fido somehow blocking such outgoing calls now on its data network? Is there any way to fix this? If support can help again I'll be forever thankful and Fido will have a happy custmer forever!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey everyone, here’s my suggestion!
Modify the APN “ltemobile.apn” to IPv4 instead of the default IPv4/IPv6 in the phone settings, under Wireless & Networks - Cellular Networks - Access Point Names.
Power cycle the device and test the connection again.
Reach out to FidoSolutions directly in private mentionning the IPv4/IPv6 issue, we’ll have to open a case in your account.
Keep us posted!
I am experiencing the same issue. The suggested fix to edit the APN does not work on my Pixel3 as I cannot edit the APN.
Is Fido/Rogers aware of this issue and can it be fixed without having to edit the APN to force IPv4?
I was unable to make VOIP phone calls over LTE internet but it worked with a VPN over LTE and over WiFi. I'm also unable to edit the Fido APN on my Android phone since it upgraded to Android 9 but tonight I found a solution which I'm sharing below.
To edit the APN:
1) Replace the Fido SIM with a Verison SIM. (I had a Verison SIM but perhaps a different provider will also work)
2) QUICKLY selected the "Fido Internet" APN, change the NAME to "MODFido Internet", change the "APN Protocol" to IPV4 and then SAVE. (On a second phone, I took a little too long and the Verison APN replaced the Fido APN so I had to restart the procedure)
3) Replace the Verison SIM with the Fido SIM.
4) Select the "MODFido Internet" APN configuration.
Voila, you should now be able to make VOIP phone calls over the Fido LTE network!
Solution confirmed on my side!
It's like the default Fido APN settings for LTE have a hidden configuration flag that prevents SIP protocol.
Also, I didn't have to put a third party SIM to do this. I just used one of the other APNs that autoconfigure with the SIM (I think it was internet.fido.ca). I changed the name of the config as you suggested and the APN address for "ltemobile.apn".
Incoming and outgoing calls work flawlessly now.
Thanks for the info!
